COUNCIL ACTION
Motion by Councilmember Moore III with a second by Councilmember Marks to approve as presented. Motion passes 6-0.
AGENDA ITEM:
Consider authorizing the Interim City Manager to execute a construction contract with Knight Erosion Control of Arlington, Texas in the amount of $251,270 for erosion mitigation on bridges and roadway projects and establish a total project budget in the amount of $275,000. 
BACKGROUND:
The Texas Department of Transportation conducted bi-annual inspections of City bridges and culverts that resulted in two bridges receiving a "Poor Condition" rating due to severe erosion on the downstream end. This rating placed the referenced bridges in the "critical findings" category for repairs. The scope of the project includes the installation of approximately 4,430 square-feet of R-Rap (concrete bag) walls, flumes, and caps to correct the current erosion concerns. 

Additionally, a resident on Hickory Road informed staff of erosion around the culvert adjacent to his property. Staff contacted Knight Erosion Control to assess and design an R-Rap system to stop further erosion. The scope of the project includes the installation of approximately 68 linear feet of R-Rap (concrete bag) walls and armor embankment.
FINDINGS:
Knight Erosion Control, Inc. submitted a proposal for $251,270 to install erosion protection for the existing infrastructure. Knight Erosion is currently under a two-year bid term with the City of Duncanville that includes a Cooperative Purchasing Agreement that allows the City to utilize the existing unit contract pricing. 
FINANCIAL IMPACT:
Funds are budgeted for annual erosion control and are available in Fund 528.
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends that Council authorize the Interim City Manager to execute a construction contract with Knight Erosion Control in the amount of $251,270 and establish a total project budget in the amount of $275,000 for the Erosion Control Projects.
